Ashqout, in the Keserwen region 31 km north of Beirut in Lebanon
The Antonine Sisters have a monastery where the sisters reside. They also run an orphanage that currently houses 130 children and a school to help them learn. The sisters currently receive 4750 (around $AUD4) Lebanese pounds a day from the Ministry of Social Affairs per child. But this is not nearly enough when they need 20 million Lebanese pounds a month to provide the children with the care they need. This includes clothes, education, food, heating and maintaining the buildings.
The sisters have tried to get more funding from the Health Minister, but there is no more money available. They rely on donations from people with generous hearts to help fund providing their children quality of life and a good education.
